Yesterday we got together with Andrew’s parents, his brother and his family, and his Marine brother Ben for a picnic on a farm near Mt. Crawford. There is a river there, and we went wading in the river. We had brought along two innertubes, and they were great for floating in the lazy part of the river. I felt like I could live the life of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn!

After our time at the river, Paul and Hannah were tuckered out. Here’s Paul having a quiet time in the back of our van. Hannah was in a bedroom with her big bear having a quiet time.

After the meal, we played Pictionary until about 8:30. That was plenty late, considering that we then had to load up our tons of paraphernalia and drive about 45 minutes to get home. But, we had a great game and had a lot of fun. My team lost, but we were ahead for most of the game! It was about as perfect a day and picnic as we could ever have hoped for.
